We went twice to L'Oustalet for dinner. Very good cuisine and good value for money. I had "souris d'agneau" and for dessert "fondant au chocolat", delicious.

This is a small, quiet restaurant with a view of the Chateau. Friendly, efficient staff; delicious meal; in an unpretentious, relaxed atmosphere. A pleasant place for a lovely meal in Provence.

We returned there after our first visit there a couple of years ago and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is still the same : old arched building inside with a cosy feeling, lovely view of the castle while eating delicious food. When I close my...More

Whenever we go somewhere we reserve the last day to return to the "best of" spots we've enjoyed during our stay. This restaurant won the lunch spot (La Bastide de Marie won dinner) and we had yet another delightful meal there. The owner is a...More
